- FORCE AND MOTION 1. Define a force as a push or a pull. 2. Describe the motion of an object using terms such as speeding up, slowing down, constant speed and stationary. Acceleration and deceleration. 3. Draw labelled diagrams showing all the forces acting on an object in motion (constant speed or accelerated) or an object at rest. Forces labelled as either thrust, friction, gravity and support. 4. Recognise that unbalanced forces will cause acceleration or deceleration (and change of direction or shape) 5. Recognise that constant speed is the result of balanced forces on an object. 6. Explain what is meant by friction and describe both the beneficial effects and the problems caused by friction. 7. Measure friction forces and their effects on an object’s motion. 8. Use force meters to measure forces on objects. 9. Describe weight as the gravity force on an object. 10. State the a force is measured in units called Newtons (N) and that 1N is the force needed to lift up 100g. 11. Calculate average speeds of objects using v = d/t. Whole number calculations only are required. 12. Experimentally determine the speed of an object by measuring both distance and time. 13. Describe the units of speed as m/s or km/h. 14. Draw a speed-time graph and recognise acceleration from the steepness of the graph line. 15. Describe the journey of an object from a given speed-time graph. Saturday, 13 March 2010

Aim to investigate the effects of forces Equipment Ping pong ball (1 per group) Drinking straw (4 per group) Cans or some other object suitable for the goal posts (4 per group) Method - Part 1 1.By blowing through the straw apply force on the ball according to the instructions given (the diagrams are there to help you) 2.For each exercise describe the response of the ball to the force (what does the ball do?) Saturday, 13 March 2010

- PING PONG SLALOM 1. This game involves setting up a slalom course (using objects from your pencil case) on your desk. 2. Each player blows through a straw to control the motion of the ball so that it weaves through the obstacles. 3. Each member of the group is timed using a stopwatch and given 3 turns. 4. The person with the lowest time wins the competition. Saturday, 13 March 2010
- EFFECTS OF A FORCE • A force is a push or a pull • You cannot see a force but you can sometimes see the effects of a force (what a force does). • Forces can be either contact (eg. leaning on a desk) or non-contact (eg. magnetic, gravity) A force can: 1.Cause movement in an object that is initially stationery 2.Change the speed of an object (speed it up or slow it down) 3.change the direction of an object. 4.change the shape of an object. 5.hold an object up (or lift an object) Saturday, 13 March 2010

- WHAT DO YOU KNOW ABOUT FRICTION? Friction is a force that opposes motion. Can you give 5 examples of useful friction and 5 examples of friction which is a nuisance to us. “HOW USEFUL !!” “WHAT A NUISANCE !!” Saturday, 13 March 2010
- FRICTION & FOOTWEAR Aim to find the relationship between the shoe design and the friction force between the shoe and a flat surface. Force meter Force Shoe This end is higher Ramp inclined at an angle ϴ Background When the shoe is pulled up the ramp, friction is acting in the opposite direction. If the shoe is being pulled at a steady speed then the force of friction is equal to the pull force. The pull force is read from the force meter and this measurement will be equal to the friction between the shoe and the ramp. Saturday, 13 March 2010
- Method 1. Set your bench up so that it is angled upwards (shown above). 2. Mark out a zone about 60 cm along the benchtop using a whiteboard marker. This will be the zone within which you will pull the shoe along at a steady speed. 3. The reading on the force meter is taken and recorded next to the type of shoe that was tested (in the table below). 4. Three readings of force are taken for each type of shoe and the average force is calculated. 5. Steps 1 to 4 are repeated with at least 3 other different shoes. 6. The results are graphed.

- CALCULATING AVERAGE SPEED distance travelled Average speed = time taken This formula allows you to calculate the average speed when the distance and time are known. It can be written using symbols: v= d where v = average speed (in metres per second, ms-1) t d = distance travelled (in metres, m) t = time taken (in seconds, s) Use this formula to calculate time when distance and speed are known t= d v and this formula to calculate distance when speed and time are known d= v x t “Here’s an easy way of remembering the formulae” d Just put your ﬁnger over the quantity you want to calculate and the v t formula appears Saturday, 13 March 2010
- Examples Calculate the average speed in each case: 1. A cyclist travels 100m in 5s. 2. A snail travels 1m in 200s. 3. An old man walks 300 cm in 2s. Calculate the distance travelled in each case: 1. A car travels at 10ms-1 for 10s. 2. A Rocket in space travels 1500ms-1 for 60s. Calculate the time taken in each case: 1. A car travels 100 m at an average speed of 10ms-1 2. A Rocket in space travels 30000 m at an average speed of 1500ms-1. Saturday, 13 March 2010

- CONSTRUCTING A SPEED-TIME GRAPH Equipment: lab trolley Cello tape ticker timer ticker tape Method scissors 30 cm ruler Part 1: Making a ticker tape record of motion 1. Check that the power pack power switch is in the “off” position. 2. Switch the voltage control to 8V. 3. Connect the leads of the ticker timer to the AC sockets. 4. Thread one end of your ticker tape through the ticker timer so that when the power pack is turned on and the tape is pulled through there is a trail of dots produced. Test this with a short piece of tape before you thread your 1.5 m length through. 5. Use Cello tape to attach the other end of the 1.5 m length of ticker tape to a lab trolley. 6. Position the trolley and the timer as shown in the diagram. 7. Push on the trolley with enough force that it travels for at least 1.5 m after the trolley has left your hand.

- READING ABOUT NEWTON Isaac Newton’s experience of an apple falling on his head encouraged him to think about forces. He had ideas about gravity force that are still important today. Newton was famous for his study of forces. He developed three laws which apply to forces. Newton’s first law stated that an object will remain stationery of travel at a steady speed unless acted upon by an unbalanced force. His second law stated that the object would accelerate in the direction of the unbalanced force. Newton knew that for any moving object there was often several forces acting together. The forces would be unbalanced if when they are added together they do not cancel each other out. It is easy to work out the unbalanced force: Saturday, 13 March 2010
- WHAT’S IN A NEWTON? 1. What is the shape of your graph? 2. What does your graph tell you is happening when you increase the amount of mass (hanging) evenly? 3. How many Newtons of gravity force act on every 100 g mass? 4. Work out how many Newtons of gravity force would act on every kg of mass. 5. How many Newtons do you weigh on Earth? 6. The gravity force per kilogram on the moon is one sixth that of Earth. How many Newtons would you weigh on the moon. 7. If you dropped an object on the moon, would you expect it to accelerate to the ground as much as if you dropped it on Earth? 8. Why do you think the force of gravity on the moon is less than the force of gravity on Earth? 9. When an object accelerates towards the ground, are the forces balanced or unbalanced Saturday, 13 March 2010

- FORCES TO GRAPHS 1. What is the name of the force that drives objects in the forward direction 2. Name the force that always acts in the opposite direction to the object’s motion. 3. Name the force that slows down the motion of a parachute. 4. If an object is traveling at a steady speed, what can we say about the forces acting on that object 5. If an object is speeding up what can we say about the forces acting on that object 6. How does a force change the direction of an object? 7. Scientific word that means the same as 'speeding up" 8. What is a scientific word that means the same as "slowing down". 9. Sketch a distance time graph that shows an object traveling at a steady speed. 10.
